Your therapeutic massage session
Each session is tailored to your needs on that specific day. My hands are seeking what is congested or tight in your body. The goal is to soften and open areas up to provide a truly therapeutic massage experience. The modalities I will use include:
Structural integration employs soft tissue manipulation with the goal of realigning the body in relationship to the force of gravity. The theory underlying structural integration asserts that often the body's connective tissue is "bound up," thus restricting opposing muscles from working independently of one another. Thus, we aim to loosen the restricted connective tissue by using a practice very similar to deep tissue massage.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. The motto at WTLLC is you have to go slow to go deep. We want to walk the line of discomfort, not cross it. The goal is to allow you to relax, even during deep work. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable.
Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after a session. You may feel sore that evening or like your muscles had a good workout the next day. Drink plenty of water, relax after the session, or take an epsom salt bath to aid in the flushing and removal of toxins that may have been released from the deep tissue session.
Your body has been re-set. Please give it time to integrate and recalibrate. No heavy lifting or workouts after a session!!
